The purpose of Jesus House Scarborough’s Children’s Ministry is to nurture children into a closer relationship with Jesus. This purpose is based on Matthew 18:14, “It is not the will of your Father who is in Heaven that one of these little ones perish.”

​The Children’s Ministry is made up of all children within the church between the ages of 1 to 18.

It has five classes, in which children are assigned based on their school grades:

  • ​Tots for Christ – Ages 1–5
  • Kingdom’s Kids – Junior Kindergarten (Grade 1)
  • Kids for Christ – Grades 2–4
  • Pre-teens – Grades 5–7
  • Teenagers – Grades 8–12

The Goals of the Children’s Ministry are:

  • To team with parents in laying a godly foundation for the children.
  • To teach biblical truth to the children, emphasizing that God is real and that a personal relationship with Him gives meaning to life.
  • To provide a safe, secure, loving and fun environment for children to participate positively in, and one where parents feel comfortable leaving their children.
  • To impact the lives of children, using a variety of teaching strategies that are developmentally appropriate with the word of God.
